Thought Of The Day

Distribution of Free Mosquito Nets To The Community

Free Mosquito nets were distributed to members of the Calabar South community recently as part of the Long lasting Insectidal Net Campaign.  The project which is partnered by USAID took place at the Calabar South Council Secretariat recently.

Container Falls Off Trailer and Flattens SUV AT Ojuelegba

An horrific accident occurred in Ojuelegba yesterday when a 20 feet container fell off a trailer as the trailer was driving up Ojuelegba bridge.  The container was being conveyed from the port to its final destination and fell onto an SUV driving underneath the bridge killing the occupants of the SUV.  May their souls rest in peace.

Reports say the truck was attempting to drive up the Ojuelegba bridge when the container fell off the trailer and crushed the SUV which was driving under the bridge.  If you look in the pictures, the SUV is underneath the red container - flattened completely from the impact of the container falling onto it from the bridge.

The authorities should look into the activities of these hauliers and ensure that any trucks carrying heavy haulage like containers et al have the proper restraints securing them in place.  These will help prevent and 
avoid horrific incidents like this.

Furious That Usain Bolt Got All Those Medals? Knock Him Down!

Usain Bolt was celebrating his gold medal in the 200m race at the World Athletics Championship when a cameraman - Mr Song Tao who was recording Usain's victory lap while riding on a Sedway scooter hit the railings on the track, toppled over and knocked down Bolt.  Accidents do happen but this one was hilarious!!

The Cameraman Mr Tao Song who works for the Chinese Broadcasting Service - CCTV has since apologised for the incident and gave Mr Bolt a bracelet as a sign of peace/apology before the medal ceremony.

Question of the Day - What Am I?

  1. So Technology Has Developed Like This? 
  2. I stored my hubby's number with his name on my phone o. This morning, I decided to call and check on him to know how he is doing. 
  3. As I scrolled to his number and called, a voice said; you have insufficient credit to make this call, please recharge and try again. 
  4. I checked my account balance to confirm this, it was true, so, I borrowed my neighbour’s phone to make this call. 
  5. This neighbour of mine is my close pal o! Someone that we played with pant in the streets together when we were growing up. Very reliable lady she is. 
  6. As I dialed my hubby's number on her phone, do you know what appeared on the screen? ”MY LOVE”. 
  7. I started wondering; how did the phone know that the owner of the number is my lover? 
  8. When I asked my friend how the phone knows that the owner of that number is my love, my friend told me that this is what all this new phones do nowadays o!
  9. So technology has gotten to this level? White people are really trying o!   We are really moving forward oh…technology, thank you ohhhhh!
